Days 56-57 Fiorenzoula d’Arda to Fornovo di Taro:
We were tired and stopped at Enoteca “Ostinati” wine bar in town.
When I tried to pay he wouldn’t take my money and then invited us inside when the winds grew worse. The local butcher came in and brought some strolghino salami. Another bartender cut it up and we soon found a plate with some bread in front of us. We of course ordered some sparking white and red wine to enjoy the incredibly delicious strolghino.Emanuele one of the patrons was then talking with us and offered to drive us up to our Ostello at Villa Santa Maria without our even asking.When I went to pay our wine bill I was told Emanuele had paid for it and he would not take any money. What a wonderful introduction to Fornovo and it’s kind and generous people.
The previous day we walked through quiet Cella where we stayed at a quiet farm house; Tra Campa Di Papaveri where Lisa and her son were most accommodating.
We used their bikes to peddle into town for a fabulous lunch at Squeri; fresh pasta with mushrooms.
Fresh Parmesan as we are just 30-40K to Parma.
Dessert was equally delicious. Cream spilt in two with strawberry sauce and salted caramel.
